All of these were taken with the Sigma 70-200 f2.8 in less-than-ideal-lighting situations but still manage to have very good detail and sharpness.

I have just acquired the 28-300 Sigma and am having a ball with it. Some images are likely to be entered in this week's Challenges, so no examples yet.

I like the 50-500 because I never know what I am going to shoot. i think I need something long for that shot waaaaay out there, and the interesting shot ends up right at my feet. You dont often need the 50 end, but sometines it is a life saver.

You can even put a TC on it to pust the range even further. It is heavy slow and big, but nothing else can do what it does.
